Mariah Carey + DJ Khaled Join Latto On ‘Big Energy’ Remix: Look + Listen

Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled have added “Big Energy” to Latto‘s remix of her 2021 breakout hit.

Scheduled for release on Monday (Mar. 28) the rapper revealed that the new take on “Big Energy” via a not-so-subtle Twitter exchange with and Carey, in which the duo hinted at a collaboration through clever emojis.

As the track samples Tom Tom Club’s 1981 single, “Genius Of Love,” which many fans will recognize from Carey’s “Fantasy,” rhe collaboration between Latto and Mariah Carey make perfect sense,

Released on StreamCut/RCA Records in September, the single peaked at #14 on the latest Billboard Hot 100, marking the 23-year-old Atlanta native’s first top 40 hit. The “Big Energy” remix follows the release of her 777 LP on Friday (3.25) which features guest collaborations from Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Nardo Wick, and Kodak Black.

As Latto previously told Billboard  “I basically took this masculine, trendy ‘big d–k energy’ quote from Twitter and made it a thing where all genders can have ‘big energy’ and take it deeper than just [something] sexual,” “I wanted it to be empowering. It’s an aura that you carry and a confidence. It’s just an overall vibe and when you walk in the room, you have ‘big energy’ and no one can tell you otherwise. It’s an uplifting thing and turning a funny quote into something positive.

“My main thing that I like to push on my fans — or even if you’re not a fan and just tuned into my career — you can like the music or not like the music, but I want you to appreciate my come up, my hustle, my grind, my dedication to what I do.” “The proof is in the pudding. If you put your mind and hard work and prayer into what you do, it will happen. I’ve been doing this since I was eight years old, and I’m watching my dreams unfold. If eight-year-old Latto saw me being on Billboard — that’s huge to me. I would never take that for granted because these are things that I worked for to accomplish. The biggest thing I want them to take from me is if they stay down, the come up is near.”
